Oh-so-berry-cute

This is so great! It's so effortlessly eye-catching and chic! J'adore the berry tones the ensemble displays. This would be a great outfit for going around town, on a rainy day, like today was, for example. Today was nice, though. Today, I got to miss first and second period, to attend a field trip to DB bistro moderne, a french modern bistro on the west side of Vancouver. It was really nice, and modern (I love modern, it's awesome!) and the food was really good. They didn't have a lot for vegetarians, but I do still recommend it. After that, I had home economics, which I am so very excited to have begun, starting with sewing, then moving on to cooking. Today we only practiced sewing straight lines on paper. I would give myself an 8.6 out of 10 if I were to grade myself, because I haven't quite mastered it, but I'm getting the hang of it. Hope the nice, warm, sunny weather returns soon to Vancouver, and when it comes, make sure to enjoy it!!

Sunny thoughts

Love, love, love this. It's like a magical fire, on a dress! A little short, but that can easily be fixed. Today is such a beautiful day, I can't wait to pick up my sister and throw the Frisbee around. You know one activity that I never see people doing anymore (and one I haven't done in a while)? It's flying a kite. When I was little, my dad used to take me to the park and he'd fly my kite with me, at the park close the the beach in White rock. That doesn't happen anymore, and I miss those days. The nice weather reminded me of it. Anyway, I can't believe that the first day of spring is tomorrow!! I'm so excited! I can start to break out my summer wardrobe!!! Yay!!!! I really prefer summer to winter. Winter you have to bundle up in a million clothes, while in the summer, you can throw on something light, and go do whatever you please. And those perfect, sunny days are coming near!!!!

This is adorable!
If I owned this, I would wear it with:
a yellow top
a rose-pink floral full skirt
and maybe some yellow or silver flats,
and definitely some pink-y butterfly earrings.
I'm so excited for spring to come, I just can't wait!
I can't wait until the weather is warm enough for dresses and skirts and for the days to get longer, so by the time it's 8:00pm, it's still light outside. My spring break was pretty good. Saturday night, I attended a friend's birthday bash, which was a blast, the rest of the week, I had friends over some days, other days were running-errands type days; until Friday, where me, my sister, and my mom took the ferry to Bowen Island, where we stayed until Sunday morning at a cute, comfortable, peaceful Bed & Breakfast, where outside, there was a beautiful, lush garden, overlooking the ocean and the mountains. There was also a short trail that led to a small beach area, where we found some unique shells, that stuck to the rock at the water's edge. When you pocked them, or tried to pull them off, they would use their suction-type-body to cling super-tightly to the giant rock. When it was time to leave the B&B, we took a bus to Cocoa West, an organic chocolatier in the artisan square (still on Bowen Island), where we bought some savory hot chocolate, made with spiced chocolate shavings. Ah, I love vacations. Tell me what your vacations were like - I'd like to hear about them!
